The West Delaware Hawks Girls Basketball team started out well on the road in Maquoketa last night but could not fend off a scrappy Cardinal team who took the lead in the 2nd quarter and never let it go. The Hawks challenged the Cards but in the end fell 53-50 to drop to 7-8 overall and 4-5 in WaMaC East division play. WD had a chance to tie the game with 1.6 to go but a good three-point look just wasn’t meant to be. Kristen Wegmann led the way offensively with a game high 21 points, including 4 three-pointers, Cassie Eilers had 9, 6 for Lauren Collier, Haley Lyness with 5 and 4 a piece for Kara Moorman and Annie Cassutt. The Hawks will return home Friday night to host Mount Vernon.
